I have a faithful reader named Lisa who’s such a creative cook that she’d probably make a great food blogger, but since she doesn’t have a blog she sends me her fantastic recipe ideas and lets me post them on Kalyn’s Kitchen.  (Thanks Lisa!)

Lisa is the one who shared her “dumb” salad recipe that I renamed Not-so-Dumb Salad with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Onions, Avocado, and Balsamic Vinegar.  That recipe has been wildly popular on the blog and I promise you that Lisa’s Cross-Cultural Salsa is just as good.  I ate it over grilled fish when I tested the recipe, but I’d love this over sauteed or grilled chicken breasts or pork chops, or as a topping for tacos or burritos.  And of course if it’s a hot summer night and you’re sitting out on the deck, you could certainly eat it with toasted pita bread or chips!

Lisa’s Cross-Cultural Salsa with Tomato, Avocado, Lime, and Feta
(Makes about 2 cups of salsa; recipe from a very creative reader named Lisa.)

Ingredients:
1 large lime, zest and juice (at least 2 T juice)
1 avocado, diced
1 cup diced fresh tomatoes
1/4 cup finely diced red onion (or sliced green onion)
1/3 – 1/2 cup crumbled Feta
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Instructions:

Zest the lime and then squeeze the juice, putting zest and juice into a bowl that’s big enough to hold all the salsa ingredients.  Dice the avocado into the bowl and toss with the lime juice and zest.

Cut up enough tomatoes to make 1 cup diced fresh tomatoes.  Finely dice the red onion and crumble the Feta.  Stir tomatoes and red onion into the avocados and lime juice and mix until well-combined.  Then gently stir in the crumbled Feta just until it’s mixed into the salsa.  (Don’t stir too much.)  Season to taste with salt and fresh ground black pepper and serve.

Serve the salsa over grilled or roasted fish, grilled or sauteed chicken, grilled or sauteed pork chops, or steak.  It could also be served as a topping for tacos or part of the filling for burritos, or simply as a salsa to be scooped up with chips or toasted pita chips.
